Hi mamas,

 

I know this is a while down he road, but I'm thinking about this already. I need comfortable, but supportive nursing bras. I tend to get plugged ducts, so the bra cannot be too restrictive. I want something easily accessible for my little nursling, comfortable, but supportive. TIA

I really like Bravado bras.  My favorite of the 3 I've tried is the Body Silk.  No underwire, supportive, clip straps, full access, and removable liners (nice for covering up breast pads).  http://www.bravadodesigns.com/shop/the-body-silk-seamless-nursing-bra

 

Anyone tried their Sublime or Bliss bras?

DDC crashing, Bravado makes nice stuff. I also found Belabumbum the other day and they've got some super cute, very comfortable looking options http://boutique.belabumbum.com/boutique/maternity

I love Anita underwired nursing bras.  I have never found a non-underwired bra that gives me the same support - I hate the wide-chested look I get from non-underwired bras.  If you're prone to blocked ducts then perhaps you would prefer to avoid an underwire, though I have not had any problems after wearing them for 2 years.

I loved the Bravado nursing tank with my last pregnancy. I just found Target is carrying nursing tanks made by bravado for only $27 or so compared to the one they have on their site for almost $50. I bought 4 while at Target the other day they are so comfy.

I also love the Bravado nursing tanks. I have large breasts, so I need some support at night, and they are perfect for that. I also have been wearing my Anita underwire nursing bra, which I like, and it has taken much abuse, under a nursing tank, for extra big-boob support. That might be too much restriction for you, but I never had a plugged duct.

 I bought them in a Target store, they say made by Bravado they only have black or white to choose from though which kinda sucks. They are in the bra section, i walked past them a few times searching for them lol

I just received my Bravado Bliss Bras (ordered from Target) and they are like butter….I feel like a new woman! They are very comfortable and keep my girls surprisingly perky, even at a 34F size (and no underwire!)….Best is they don’t even look like a nursing bra!
